Gregory M. Shumaker

In his nearly 30 years at Jones Day, Greg Shumaker has played a leading role in some of the Firm's highest profile engagements. Throughout 2013 and 2014, he was one of the lead trial lawyers representing the City of Detroit in its historic bankruptcy proceedings. Greg served in the same capacity in 2009, helping lead Chrysler into and out of bankruptcy — including appeals to the Second Circuit and United States Supreme Court — in 42 days. He recently was part of the team that succeeded in convincing the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware to dismiss with prejudice a $400 million breach of contract complaint against Fidelity Investments on the pleadings. He also was co-lead counsel in a three-month accounting fraud trial for a liquidating trust against a major corporate conglomerate.

Greg's practice focuses on complex civil and bankruptcy litigation and criminal, regulatory, and congressional investigations. He has represented corporations in a wide array of matters, ranging from corporate governance disputes and toxic tort litigation to sensitive internal investigations involving allegations of fraud and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and False Claims Act.
